Stressed at home?
Stressed at work?
If the answer to any of the above is yes, well…we know how you feel!!
If you’re a student, have a job, or a stay-at-home parent, it’s almost inevitable that pressure and stress is going to get to you at some point. COVID-19 hasn’t helped in this area.
How you deal with that stress is what makes the difference.
While people feel stress in similar ways, each person’s body reacts to stress in its own unique way.
You might have to figure out an effective way of dealing with your stress according to what works best for you.
However, there is one thing that has proven to be useful for almost everyone; exercise!
It is a known fact that exercise can help relieve anxiety and stress in people of all ages.
When you take part in any physical activity, your body prompts your brain to release endorphins.
These “feel good” hormones help stress management and encourage your mind to organize its thoughts, think clearly, and be more energized. That’s a great thing, right?!!
There are plenty of different types of exercise that can help you cope with stress.
One of them is known as HIIT.
HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) is a fast way to get a good workout in. The workout combines high-intensity exercises with short breaks for recovery in order to maximize their effect. The workout’s primary purpose is to help you build endurance and burn calories in a short amount of time. Moreover, HIIT does not have fixed exercise routines, which means your workouts can vary each time you train.
One downside to HIIT training is if you have joint problems, have been sitting a lot, or your muscles are tight, HIIT can be counterproductive. While HIIT is great, we strongly recommend you DO NOT jump right into a HITT training program without the following:
1.) Learning how to properly foam roll. Foam rolling any knots or adhesions that may have progressed during your “time off” will help with tissue extensibility and mobility; thereby reducing the risk of injury.
2.) Doing a structured warm-up program that gets your nervous system and body in a state to perform prior to “putting a load” on your body.
Working on proper form and technique to gain knowledge and proper movement patterns with your core lifts prior to doing a ballistic, high velocity workout such as HITT. This is essential and imperative for you not to get injured during a HIIT workout.
Ask Personal Trainer San Diego Iron Orr Fitness about how to prepare for HIIT workouts successfully, so you can gain the benefits of HIIT without the potential muscle contusions, tightness, extreme soreness, and injuries that can come from going from a de-conditioned state into a HIIT program.
